Hayes Higgins Partnership are providing Civil and Structural Engineering Services and Design and Supervision Services for this project which is been constructed under the GCCC Form of Contract.

This project involves the construction of a new post primary school of approximately 6887m² on the existing school site and refurbishment of the existing PE Hall followed by removal of the temporary accommodation currently on-site at Tullamore College, Tullamore, Co. Offaly.

It is recommended that a new multi-storey school block is designed and constructed to the west of the existing PE Hall. This has the following benefits:

  • Improves the availability of land bank for external facilities through a more efficient footprint.

  • Up to date educational provision of teaching spaces and equipment.

  • Up to date building fabric for improved thermal performance, internal environment and reduced running costs.

  • Elimination of need for decanting of the school and phasing of the works as the school can operate in the current building until completion of the contract.

  • Urban planning benefits to the junction of O’Carroll Street, Harbour Street and Riverside.
